Song Title: True Love Will Find You In The End (Daniel Johnston cover).
In a bit of a reverse to their previous ‘Special Someone’ ad, which showed dogs with a woolly doll version of their hoped-for future owner, this new Dogs Trust TV advert now shows people carrying balloon sculptures of their future four-legged companions.
Once again Dogs Trust have created a very moving and emotional advert, which highlights the great work they do and the need for more people to provide their residents with much deserved permanent, loving homes.
The song playing in this ad is a cover of American singer-songwriter and musician Daniel Johnston’s 1985 song ‘True Love Will Find You In The End’.
We’re not currently sure who’s singing the version featured in the advert or if it has been recorded especially for Dogs Trust. If and when we find out more about this cover and whether or not it will be released as a full length single, we’ll update this page to let you know.
You can of course download the original and other cover versions of True Love Will Find You In The End from Amazon and iTunes. About the most similar version we’ve come across so far is the one released in 2008 by Richard Walters:
The above 40-second version of this ‘Little Balloon Doggy’ video was added to the Dogs Trust YouTube channel on the 13th of July, 2017, with the advert due to make its TV premiere this Saturday evening on ITV during The Voice Kids.
